How it works
One Night Ultimate Werewolf is a quick, fun, and engaging game meant for between 3 and 10 people to play in which every player gets a role. Like a terrible Werewolf, the mischievous Troublemaker, the wise Seer, or many unique roles, all with their own special ability. Over the length of one morning, your village will collaborate and decide who of them is a werewolf. If you find out who is a werewolf, you are the winner, but if you can’t figure it out, the werewolves win! There is no moderator, no one can be eliminated, and the game only lasts about 10 minutes, there are so few rules you can be up and playing in just a few minutes. The game also comes to life with a free app that walks you through what happened during the night! This game is super quick, easy, and fun you’ll want to play it time and time again.
The basic end goal is to discover and kill the players who are the werewolves if you are playing on the villager’s team or try to prevent the werewolves from getting discovered and killed if you are playing as a werewolf.
In order to start playing this very easy game, you will need to first decide how many people are playing and choose the appropriate amount of character cards, either randomly or you can choose your favorites. There are typically two werewolves in a game, but you get to decide however you want to, including by mixing up the whole pile and giving them out with no idea what is in the pile. Every player gets one card and should look at it without showing anyone else, three extra cards are put upside down on the middle of the playing surface.
The night phase, several of the characters are allowed to do their ability. One person can be an announcer to say the characters turn and keep track of time, or you can utilize the included app. A good tip is also to have some background noise, so no one can hear cards being picked up and moved around.
When everyone’s character has completed their actions, it becomes the day phase and all the players wake up or open their eyes. Players can now spend about 5 minutes talking about who you think must be the players who are the werewolves. Players can talk about anything, try to trick players, lie, and even utilize the character coins to make sure the story stays in line, but you can’t reveal your character card to any of the other players. You cannot even check the card in front of you. After the 5 minutes are over the players must take a vote. Everyone must point at one player at the same time, the player who receives the greatest number of votes is killed and has to show everyone what their card is.
